Upon entering Mermaid Oyster Bar, diners feel as though they have escaped the city on a beach vacation. Offering delicious food in a welcoming atmosphere, patrons can enjoy a relaxing and leisurely dining experience away from the hustle & bustle of busy New York City streets. Bringing a bite of the beach to the West Village, this casual neighborhood spot combines a laid-back fish shack mentality with a menu that reads like an oyster bar’s greatest hits: an extensive raw bar; clam shack favorites like steamers, mussels and fried oysters; and a variety of simply prepared whole fish and fish sandwiches. The cocktails and beers on tap and the rollicking classic rock-country playlist evoke the nostalgia of summer on every visit.

We had a lot of fun. Oysters from hurricane island in Maine were a special surprise for us. Service was excellent. I had told them it was my husband’s birthday and they brought out little cups of mousse for us all with a candle for Will.

Fantastic happy hour every time. Always good and interesting oysters, not the usual suspects that other places offer. Good happy hour drinks and delicious additional menu options for happy hour. Also, the lobster knuckles (served escargot style) are an absolute delight!

Everything was great but I can’t believe they serve Tilapia. It’s just not a quality fish. And it’s so expensive here! That said the lobster roll was delicious as were the mussels.
